View from condo for sale in Lauderdale by the Sea, FloridaWhile showing condos for sale in Lauderdale by the Sea, I was pleasantly surprised to find an oceanfront condo directly on the sand and priced for sale under $300,000.  Yes, the condo needs a complete renovation.... but, 2 bedrooms, on the sand and under $300,000 in a real estate market with very limited inventory! This is a gem waiting to be polished.

The unit faces west, so you don't have direct ocean views, but you can see the ocean from the very large covered terrace as well as from both bedrooms. You do however, have a stunning direct view of the Intracoastal Waterway, and at night; when lit up, it is magical.  

A very spacious condo with just under 1,300 square feet of interior living space offering a split bedroom plan.  All windows and a glass

A recent article in the Sun-Sentinel reported the city of Fort Lauderdale is considering changes to Las Olas Blvd to improve traffic for both pedestrians and drivers.

photo of Las Olas River House and Downtown Fort LauderdaleLas Olas Blvd known for its trendy shops and restaurants also serves as the direct route between downtown Fort Lauderdale and the beach as well as a neigborhood street for businesses, residential homes and downtown Fort Lauderdale condominiums.

Consultants have suggested "better signalization, fewer lanes, more visible crosswalks, bike lanes and wider sidewalks."

At a public forum this past week, some

photo of view from terrace of Ritz CarltonThe Fort Lauderdale Luxury Condo market reveals as of September 2013 it is technically a buyer's market due to the months of inventory based on the summer's closed sales numbers; however, going into the winter months "the season", I believe the inventory will gradually decrease as the snowbirds to the north welcoming in the cold weather begin to flock south may find seller's here holding firm on their asking prices.

Total availble inventory of luxury condos for sale (priced at 1Million+) has been on a steady decline from the start of 2013.  From July thru September 2013, inventory averaged 93 condos for sale per month representing an 8.8% decrease from 3rd Quarter 2012. Pending Sales have trended up all year and averaged 8 per month in 3rd Quarter 2013
